Muradie Mosque

Vlore, Albania

One of the most beautiful buildings in Vlore, the Muradie Mosque (Xhamia e Muradies) was built in 1542. It is believed that the cultural monument was designed by the prominent Albanian architect, Mimar Sinani, a leading mosque builder in the Ottoman Empire and the author of the Great Suleymaniye Mosque in Istanbul. The monument consists of a prayer hall and a carved stone minaret.

In 1967, when the communist regime barred all mosque and churches in town, the Mosque of Muradie changed its functionality, becoming the Museum of Architecture of Vlore district.
